Paraffin Control

In some shale basins, paraffin or wax deposition can be a problem for gathering and transmission pipelines. Left untreated, in addition to reduced flow, paraffin can lead to costly repairs and extensive remedial treatments. Innospec Oilfield Services offers a wide range of water-soluble and oil-soluble paraffin inhibitors that are specifically designed to keep wax in solution. In addition, when other issues are present, such as scale, corrosion or emulsions, many of our inhibitors are custom formulated to include applicable products to help keep operating costs low, maintain flow and reduce down time.


An oil-soluble blend of solvents that have been field proven to be highly effective in the removal of deposited paraffins and waxes commonly encountered in pipeline environments.


A blend of water-soluble detergents and dispersants designed to remove deposits of paraffinic hydrocarbons, oils solids and iron sulfide in pipelines.
